I ran in the Independence 5K down at Dallas White Rock Lake this morning. I ran the my fastest 5K so far. My Garmin watch had it at 29:14... which is totally crazy! My previous best 5K time was 30:48 which was last month. I started out a lot faster than I thought I should have with my first mile at 9:26. I'm so pumped at the beginning of a race that it seems I always start out faster than I should. My second mile I slowed down to 9:42 which is still well ahead of my normal running pace. The third mile I was feeling great so I kept up the pace and actually kicked it a little higher with a 9:14 mile. I believe that's my fastest mile so far. What an awesome feeling to keep better and better as I go along.
White Rock Lake is such a beautiful place to run! There were so many walkers, runners, and bikers in the park. I cannot wait to get back down there for my long runs.
I was so glad that Ursula came along. I didn't know anybody there and it was so awesome to see her smiling face as I got to the finish line.
Yo Denise... here's your dog picture! We saw a biker that had their 3 little dogs in the child carrier on the back of their bike. Of course, we had to get a picture. We had one of these kiddie carriers for Briana and Cairo when they were wee little!
